this question answers the question on how to stop the line from being autocorrected from ---. I don't have a problem with that. I'm having a problem with a saved document containing such a line that I need to get removed.

I am referring to a line similar to HTML tag <hr>, like this:

This line is generated by typing --- and hitting enter. I'm unable to remove such a line from a document in OpenOffice's Writer.

How is that accomplished?

Try highlighting the page/paragraph and use RightClick (or Format menu), Format, Page/Paragraph, Borders, None. Alternatively use default format. It does seem rather erratic though so you may need to experiment with format either paragraph/page.

Thanks. I had to repeat the procedure multiple times. Quite odd. – Ivan Vučica May 20 '11 at 11:12
